Yes, I have been waiting for the statute of limitations to run out!

The thought of a book that could evolve from my experiences with the band and the community that followed them has percolated in the back of my mind from time to time. While I believe I have shed much of the baggage that ended up accumulating from my experience and feel more clear than ever on some things, there are other people to consider. Of course it would be fun coming up with aliases.

Much of what I could say is pretty sensitive stuff, and having an overview of the forum past and present I would be hesitant in disclosing certain aspects of the story. I suppose I care what people think of me here, although that hasn’t always stopped me from posting! One slight amendment to my statement about always getting in – I was apprehended once before a show for vending without a license and thereby missed the show that night.

After all these years since tour ended I still cherish those moments with Jerry, as unappealing as they may sound to some today, and I have come to accept (and expect) that some of us will always put down the band’s later performances.

You really should write something. At the very least, to donate to the USC archives, for history's sake. Being rather obsessed with history and first-person narratives, I really do think it's important that somebody (hopefully LOTS of people) do that. And hey, the statute of limitations will have certainly run out by the time you get to be somebody's PhD project in 2067 ...

Or, on the other hand, you can just write a juicy book and make lots of money :-)

vapors , we may have met along the way . Just to be in the same room as JG . Why do you think I got involved w/the Spinners to begin with ?
Be careful vapors . There is a vile book out there , Growing Up Dead . It's reach is far beyond its grasp . It paints with a broad brush , rather clumsily .
There is always sensitive information , v - beyond any aliases . Always will be . And that pesky wanting to be liked , or at least not shot upon . I mean , here with all your friends on IA , you could tell us anything . ;)
You , we all do , need to set time aside at some point and put this stuff down . Laugh if you must , but it is primary history .
O.K. v , you stinking Tour Rat .
